Need help setting up second monitor

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
An hour ago I pulled the LCD monitor off my 10 year old laptop, and I'm wondering can I do anything with the monitor?

It has 2 small orange output plugs, different sizes.

well, I was looking into this a while ago, and there's not much you can do. Laptop screens use a digital input, and The output on a computer is analog. The only way you could use it with your computer is if you buy an LCD controller, which is more expensive than buying a new LCD screen.

in case you are wondering, you still need the controller even if you are using the DVI output on your computer.

It can, as has been done, but it's not (in my opinion) worth it.
